Peavey Pleads Not Guilty In Lowell

BOSTON -- A Florida man who was wanted for more than 20 years on a rape charge has been released on personal recognizance following his arraignment in Massachusetts.

Richard Peavey, of Orlando, pleaded not guilty in Lowell District Court Thursday to charges of rape and default on a fugitive warrant.

Corey Welford, a spokesman for the Middlesex District Attorney's office, told the Lowell Sun that prosecutors requested a cash bail of $75,000 because of Peavey's lengthy criminal record and a burglary conviction, but the judge disagreed.
The DA's office said Peavey was charged under a warrant issued by the district court in 1987, and that the alleged victim was a woman from Tewskbury.

Prosecutors said the state police violent fugitive unit was made aware that Peavey was in Florida, but details of his arrest were not immediately available.
